'Dukes of Hazzard' Stars John Schneider and Tom Wopat Respond to Renewed Controversy Over Car's Confederate Flag
For a family show about two good old boys, The Dukes of Hazzard has seen its share of controversy.
Before it even premiered on CBS on Jan. 26, 1979, then-CBS programming chief B. Donald Grant squared off with a roomful of TV critics who hated it. Among their objections was that "the two male leads appear to be on the wrong side of the law, that the subject of illegitimate parenthood was treated humorously, and that one of the female regulars is often seen in skimpy costume," according to a Hollywood Reporter account. One North Carolina critic went further, calling the show's stereotypes "out of line with the New South."
Grant ignored the critics and Hazzard went on to air on CBS from 1979 to 1985, winning over millions of ardent fans in the process. In its initial run, the series drew as many as 20 million viewers per episode and by its third season had become the second-biggest show on TV.
"I have never had an African American come up to me and have any problem with it whatsoever," John Schneider (Bo), 60, tells THR, adding that "the whole politically correct generation has gotten way out of hand."
"There are 80 million descendants of the Confederacy — one out of four people has that heritage. Most of them have no problem with the flag at all," Jones asserts. "This was a family show. Black families watched it for generations. I know this. I had a [congressional] office right there in the Martin Luther King district. King's right-hand man Andy Young is a dear friend of mine. We couldn’t care less about rebel flags."

'I was scared of him': Thandie Newton reveals Tom Cruise left her 'terrified and insecure' on Mission: Impossible II set... as she gives insight into working with the 'dominant and stressed' actor

The British actress, 47, played Tom's character Ethan Hunt's love interest Nyah Nordoff-Hall in the movie two decades ago, and in an interview with Vulture she has shed light on feeling 'terrified and insecure' on-set of the movie.
In an anecdote about filming a scene in Spain, the Westworld actress boldly admitted: 'I was so scared of Tom. He was a very dominant individual. He tries super hard to be a nice person. But the pressure. He takes on a lot.'

Halle Berry Wants to Play a Transgender Character? (Updated with Video + Berry’s Apology)
Okay. I was not expecting Oscar-winner Halle Berry to publicly share that she’s interested in playing a transgender character for a new project she was pitched.
I’m a huge fan of Halle Berry. I’m looking forward to watching her directorial debut Bruised (which will premiere during TIFF 2020). She will also begin filming the sci-fi Moonfall this Fall. Due to her hard work over the decades, Berry has become the type of established actress in Hollywood who can do what she wants (including creating projects). And I’m here for all of her future projects. However, what she said about wanting to play a transgender character in a movie is what made me go, “Wait a minute!”

Wave of criticism smashes Lin-Manuel Miranda as leftists declare 'Hamilton' to be 'problematic'
"Are y'all ready to talk about how problematic Hamilton is? Lin Manuel Miranda created a piece of work that used hip hop (a genre created by black people) to tell the story of colonizers and slave owners," one Twitter user wrote.
"As much as I love the show, it and it's writer are deeply problematic," another wrote. "I've intentionally or unintentionally ignored these things for years, but I'm trying to fix this now so I can fully contextualize and understand Hamilton and it's effect as a whole."
"Reminder for all y'all Hamilton watching mofos: Hamilton was a racist slaveowner, and casting POC as white bigots isn't the reclamation you think it is," read a tweet that had nearly 60,000 likes. "It's a romanticized telling of a white man's plights, so none of y'all better be stanning the founding fathers AGAIN."
Ajamu Baracka, a self-described "international human rights activist," blasted Miranda.
"Lin-Manuel Miranda is a Puerto Rican Uncle Tom who instead of fighting for independence makes feel-good revisionism for white liberals. He is pathetic," Baracka said.

Ellen DeGeneres’ Treatment Of Staff, Guests Revisited After Producers Denied Cancellation Rumors
Ellen DeGeneres' treatment of her staff and guests has been revisited after the producers of her talk show denied the cancellation rumors.
In the past months, DeGeneres has been slammed on Twitter for allegedly being mean. The “Ellen Show” crew was reportedly furious about the lack of communication over their pay during the pandemic. When the show stopped airing due to the coronavirus outbreak, about 30 core crew members were affected.
Meanwhile, several people also came forward to share their encounter with the host. It started with comedian Kevin T. Porter launching a thread on Twitter calling those who had “insane” stories about “Ellen being mean.” Benjamin Siemon responded and said that DeGeneres has a “sensitive nose.”
“So everyone must chew gum from a bowl outside her office before talking to her and if she thinks you smell that day you have to go home and shower,” he wrote.

Black Women Are Getting Left Behind In The Black Lives Matter Movement
The #SayHerName campaign was created by the African American Policy Forum in December 2015. This movement was created to uplift the voices of Black women who have become victims of police brutality, established in an attempt to rectify the lack of coverage Black women received in comparison to men. Recent headlines make it more apparent than ever that this is still an ongoing problem. We are standing by as Black women fight for visibility, allowing the media to let another Black woman slip under the radar.
It’s important we adjust our allyship quickly, as Breonna Taylor is not the only woman who needs our action. Black Lives Matter activist Oluwatoyin Salau was just 19 years old, found dead in Tallahassee, Florida at the hands of Aaron Glee Jr. In the same week, we lost two Black trans women: Dominique Fells and Riah Milton. These and other Black women are not pawns for you to use for social activism points. None of these women have been fought for with enough fire and passion. Black women are not getting the attention they deserve.
